Megan Thee Stallion’s red lip makeup look uses the best liner hack


Forget floral wreaths, face jewelry and crochet everything – Megan Thee Stallion’s version of festival attire is next level. At Glastonbury Festival in England, arguably the country’s premier concert event, the always stylish rapper took the stage in what can only be described as a high-fashion take on biker and leather subcultures, with an appropriately vampy make-up look, that fits. Her leather-on-leather Burberry bustier — part of a tailored costume created specifically for her headlining set — was effortlessly complemented by Megan’s red lip makeup look. By shading the outline of her lips with a deeper, brown lip liner, the 3D two-tone effect makes her look bolder, plumper and defined – perfect for entertaining a screeching crowd of thousands.

When Megan thanked Riccardo Tisci and the entire Burberry team via Instagram for her head-to-toe look, she meant it quite literally. The full ensemble included the harness embellished bustier bodysuit, a black fur shrug bolero, leather gloves, boots and even a matching leather biker hat. Megan’s longtime hairstylist and close friend, Kellon Deryck, left the hair looking sexy and simple, opting for an extra long cut with blunt ends and a shiny raven shade. While it’s not known exactly what went into the multidimensional lip, chances are it’s the work of Lauren Elise Kinda famous makeup artist who has worked with Megan on her looks for Coachella, the Met Gala, the Grammys, and virtually every magazine shoot, red carpet, or stage performance.

Those rimmed red lips were undoubtedly the star of Megan’s Glastonbury beauty pick, although the accompanying makeup is quite excellent on its own. While the eyes were mostly obscured by futuristic Burberry tones, her subtle blush and silky skin looked ’80s-inspired with the blood-red lipstick (rather than overpowering it). Even on the famously grainy concert screens, her red-lipped smile was seen throughout the festival grounds.

Once on stage, Megan was her characteristically open self. In between playing her biggest hits, the rapper paused to share her thoughts on the Supreme Court ruling that just returned Roe v. Wade picks up. A vocal advocate of social justice and reproductive rights, Megan led the like-minded crowd in a “My body, my choice” chant. The sentiment was popular at the festival – other American artists, including Olivia Rodrigo, Kendrick Lamar and Phoebe Bridgers, took time out during their sets to denounce the decision and draw attention to women’s health resources. “I wouldn’t be me,” Megan began, pacing the stage if I didn’t take a second to talk about it. “The hot guys and the hot girls don’t support that,” she said again, before leading the chant and then continuing her explosive performance.

Then, the very next day, she won the BET Awards and took home the top honor for the third straight year – an oh-so-casual weekend for Thee Stallion.
